Float like a Butterfly, sit like royalty in this truly amazing bean bag lounger. At the recent Maison & Objet show in Paris, interior designers and industry experts in home furnishings could not believe that this bean bag did not contain a solid structure. The design of internal elastics and multi bead compartments is truly gravity defying and gives such a good level of support all over. You can sit in in so many positions... lean back, sit up straight, sprawl out within the cocooned walls of the chair which also act as a perfect arm rest. Don't let any of your crew dethrone you from your Hot Chocolate sofa; bound to be the favorite seat in the house.

WATCH: How to Fill a Butterfly Sofa with our Zip & Tip System
Filling a Butterfly Sofa is now recommended with around 350lt of our Premier Bead (depending on personal comfort levels).
Rec. Filling Instructions: First note that there are two filling compartments for the Butterfly Sofa design, one for the back and one for the base (seating area). It is recommended that the back compartment is filled nice & tight and the seating area is a little more loosely filled for best comfort & style. Always use Ambient Lounge safety locking zip tool or paper clip to open the child proof safety zips on the bean bag cover.
Step 1. Open back compartment & attach our 155 plus litres filling bag securely to the back compartment gusset first. Zip & tip letting gravity do most of the work and empty out all the beads. Fill back compartment as tightly as possible so that the Butterfly Sofa frame will be firm and supportive. To ensure that all beads compact inside, you should shake and 'push' beads so that they are able to get in and behind the elastic supports. Pat down the outer fabric of the bag firmly so that beans can shift freely and move down the compartment inside. Once tightly filled (so that it can't get any more beans inside), close the inner gusset bag and outer cover zip.
Step 2. Open seating compartment and attach the Funnelweb or smaller 150lt bag of beads. Zip & Tip letting gravity do most of the work. Keeping the funnelweb attached, flip the bean bag and sit on it to test the filling levels that satisfy your personal comfort levels. When filled to most comfortable level - unzip, close the inner gusset bag and outer cover zip. Keep spare beads in a funnelweb or transport bag for top ups when the beads inevitably compress a little over time.
All our beautiful Ambient Lounge interior fabrics are extremely high quality and built to last if we take good care of them. Here are some handy Care Tips:
If your open weave fabric thread becomes loose, simply cut it off. Do not pull it. Dust is best removed using your hand vacuum with the appropriate attachment. Avoid harsh brushing and sharp objects (rings, buckles, toys) as it may cause snagging of threads. To avoid your bean bag fading, it is best not to expose it to direct sunlight. For best safety, your furniture should be placed at least 50cm away from any heat source. During the first 3-6 months, bead filling/padding will compress slightly and may require top up. This is to be considered as normal wear and a good reason why you should use the best quality beads such as our Premier Bead. As tempting as it may be, armrests & backrests are not designed to take seating weight so please try to sit as conventionally as possible. To keep your bean bag furniture looking amazing, you should plump and shake it after use to the bead filling and fabric return to their initial appearance.
Washing & Cleaning:
The good news is that all of our interior fabric covers are warm machine or hand washable in cold or lukewarm water. Please always line dry after washing. Decant the beads using the Funnelweb system before washing and refill afterwards. For ease of care you may also spot clean most stains and scuffs using warm water or a high quality fabric cleaning kit. Fabric protection kits are also encouraged such as 3M Scotch Guard.
Repairs and Warranty:
Like anything in life problems can occasionally occur. If seam splits or tearing occur with reasonable wear and time - please check with our UK team if that is covered under statutory warranty. You may email our friendly team with photos of the problem plus proof of purchase on firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0844 579 1112. (Most small faults or tears are also easily repairable).
Enjoy Ambient Loungin'!
